Sorry, I wasn't clear - the logic 4 DOES add the analog functionality and thus qualifies as an o-scope. It is out of his price range, but he might inquire as to bulk or student discounts. They might knock some $$ off that $100...
We've been using the Saleae Logic 16 - https://www.saleae.com/logic16 at work.It goes from 2 channels at 100MHz up to 16 channels at 12.5MHz. We use them for debugging all the low speed stuff (serial ports, I2C, SD, etc.) - basically everything but the CPU memory interface.
Their upcoming "pro" version adds analog sampling, but it is not yet out.
I'm still trying to get the ESN/MEID out of it.
No, it's not on the sticker under the battery.
No, it's not in the phone status.
Yes, I whacked build 7 times and turned on developer stuff.
Yes, I did ##DMMODE# to turn that on, but I'm not really certain what-all that does.
So, yeah, slightly stuck.
I realize that people are trying to make money off this arcane knowledge, but it bothers me that the information is so scattered, proprietary and hidden.
I figure I'll fire up ADB and see if I can pull that info from the phone. I mean, it must know, right?
If you feel like dropping me a line with suggestions, feel free. firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd appreciate any suggestions you may have.
Yeah, something I'm rapidly discovering. I bought a used Samsung Galaxy S3 and am having a hell of a time getting it to work.
I suppose I could find someone to remote flash it for me, but that seems like cheating.
PagePlus uses Verizon's network on a pay-as-you-go model. If your usage is low, you may save a considerable amount.
My family doesn't buy beef because the half dozen or so deer we kill per year more than meets our needs.
And MacGyver was a hippie who needed a haircut and a firearm. (Waaaah, I don't like guns!!) Hippie.
Gilligan's Island did have the professor...
Ignoring the "you're missing the social commentary" aspect, I present the following counter-evidence:
- Bones, CSI, NCIS, etc. focus a lot on the technology, albeit with a lot of creative liberties taken to make for good TV. However, fundamentally, the squints rule those series.
- Big Bang Theory - Sitcom with the protagonists being several scientists, an engineer and a down the hall neighbor.
Point of information - right or wrong, at the time it was written, "We the people" was wealthy landowners and business-owning white men. Women and unpropertied white men weren't counted.
(That said, I agree with your point - just because you're not an engineer doesn't mean you should be restricted from acting as a sovereign citizen and exercising control over your life.)
This. As an engineer who "got my feet wet" with a stint in local politics, because it was like dealing with a bunch of children. Everyone hated everyone else, it was full of petty rivalries and such. It does show that Diplomacy is actually quite accurate, but that doesn't mean that I wanted to do it for real.
Why? What (for example) precludes ARM desktops running Linux?
Depends on what you mean by rednecks. A lot of the folks up here (upstate NY) who proudly call themselves rednecks have quite a lot of mechanical knack - including understanding of mechanical forces, loads, etc., physics, chemistry.. After all, if you're going to build a dirt track race car out of an old Caddy, you need to make sure it will hold together in a wreck. Same with improvised explosives, homemade ammunition, etc. Are they all like this? No. However, many are, and the ones that are tend to be mechanics, machinists, and compulsive putterers and tinkerers.
Have a look at the DSG gearbox from VW/Audi/Porsche. It's essentially a double-clutched manual w/ an automatic shifting bit.
I'm waiting for 10.04.1 and will likely standardize on that until next LTS.
Will save the bleeding edge for VMs.
